'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Save $60 on a Nintendo Switch Lite bundle with Walmart's Cyber Monday deal

Get one of the most popular Switch games completely free with this Walmart Cyber Monday deal.
Written by Artie Beaty, Contributing Writer

Cyber Monday is well underway, and there are hundreds of sales to save money on your favorite tech products. But if you're looking for a great price specifically on a Nintendo Switch Lite, Walmart's Cyber Monday sale is a can't-miss. 

The Nintendo Switch Lite, a kid-friendly, slimmed-down version of the original Switch, is usually priced at $199. The Nintendo Switch Lite + Animal Crossing bundle though, currently on sale from Walmart, comes in at the very same price -- throwing in the hit game Animal Crossing for free, effectively saving you $60. Animal Crossing is one of the highest rates games on the Switch, and one that you don't often see sales on. 

The Switch Lite is already a fantastic option for younger gamers or travelers. It has a smaller screen with more compact controls, plus a longer battery life. And when you couple Animal Crossing: New Horizons with it, one of the most popular games for the younger set, it's an obvious choice if you're looking for a Switch console for a kid. Since it's available for in-store pickup or free shipping (overnight for me), you'll have the console in plenty of time for Christmas. If you happen to be looking for a deal on the Nintendo Switch OLED, there's a fantastic Cyber Monday sale there too -- a free $75 gift card.
